*Please note that I have no current availablity and can not take enquiries until September.
I am an integrative therapist, working from a private and confidential space in Chatteris.
I can offer a consistent space just for you, on a long or short term basis.
I understand how daunting it can feel when searching for a therapists, so it is important that you find someone that feels right for you.
What I offer
I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to explore the difficulties that you might be facing. Sometimes in life we can feel depressed, anxious or we are just not coping with things as well as we would like to. Perhaps you are using alcohol, substances or food to cope with life? Do you find relationships difficult and find yourself wanting more?
Counselling is an opportunity where you can begin to understand what might have led you to this place and what might help you to move forward in your life. I believe that everyone is a unique individual and that each person has the ability to resolve their own difficulties when provided with the right environment.
I work from an integrative approach, which means I draw from a range of theories that I can adapt to which best suits you. As humans we are primarily motivated by the need for contact with others and to form relationships. My core approach is person-centred, incorporating object relations and attachment theory. What this means is that the sessions are led and directed by you, using the relationship to help you understand your difficulties.
My style is collaborative that offers encouragement and empathy as together I would like to help you understand your difficulties by utilising elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Attachment Theory, psychodynamic, and Developments in Neuroscience.
I can offer both talking and creative interventions that will allow you to explore the parts of your life you want to change. Counselling is a place where I can help equip you with the necessary tools to implement the changes you want to make.
If you have any questions relating to my practice or counselling in general please feel free to contact me.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
